The Wickeed, is first and foremost the story of an encounter. Romain and John are both from Belgium, but met for the first time during a show in France, where they were officiating under their respective monikers (DirtySkeys and LUUUL). The two producers immediately hit it off. A bromance ensued where they shared their experiences, their tracks and musical projects, before all naturally starting to combine their skills.
And in 2016 The Wicked was born; a partnership sealed with a first single, « Vacation ». Their signature sound stands out immediately, with carefully crafted pop melodies, a certain electro swing, future beats and the clear intent of working with the pure and juvenile voice of Rebekka Garden.The mighty Spinnin’ Records were quick to latch on to their fresh sound, signing and releasing their first track. With only a few tracks and as many months of work under their belt, the duo catches the eye of Petit Biscuit, the new French electro sensation, who invites them to open for him at the Botanique in Brussels. They go on to record a collaboration (under the name Mount Dream, totalling over 8 million streams on Spotify alone). After only a year of activity, they win the prestigious competition from Hungarian Sziget Festival.
But 2018 promises the best to come yet, with the release in the Spring of « United », their first EP to come out on Club Riviera, the new electro label digging up tomorrow’s talents (behind Disclosure, Kungs, Felix Jaehn, LeMarquis…). As a delightful appetiser, the duo released a very classy remix of none other than Carla Bruni, for the track « Miss You ».
Only a few more days to go before February 16th 2018, and the release of « From The Top » the first single taken from their EP and recorded with Alex Holmes, the up-and-coming singer on the UK scene; an irresistible dance pop track that bears all the marks of one of this year’s electro gem to be.
